November 3rd is National Sandwich Day in the United States. Although I’ve never heard of it, I was interested to read about the best sandwiches in each state! So many delicious combinations! I could have guessed the Po Boy would have represented Louisiana. When I saw the photo I realized how long it’s been since I’ve had one myself – and I discovered Koen had never had one! A Po Boy is a sandwich made with a baguette, fried seafood (although I’ve only had them with fried shrimp), lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, mayonnaise, and hot sauce with a squeeze of lemon or lime.
I know usually I only post photos of what I have made – but my husband is an amazing cook! Rather than going to the bakery for baguettes, he wanted to try making them himself. Mmm… They turned out so well!
